The Old 97’s stopped by the 9:30 Club on Friday night, and they brought a taste of Austin, Texas to D.C.! Rhett Miller and the boys entertained a full house of fans by performing nonstop energetic hits! Shantel Breen went to the show to take part in the excitement.
Formed in 2004, indie rockers, Cold War Kids, from Long Beach California, are still going strong. Following an appearance at the Firefly Festival, Cold War Kids stopped by Rams Head Live in Baltimore on Sunday, and Shantel Breen went to check out the show.
The 8×10 in Baltimore came alive this past Thursday! Marco Benevento delivered a non-stop, high energy performance to an enthusiastic crowd, making it one of my top shows this year to date.
The Front Bottoms returned to the area performing a two-part set that included three of their releases played in their entirety. When I arrived at Baltimore Soundstage this past Wednesday for The Front Bottoms show, the line was wrapped around the building. Fans formed a line at least three hours before doors so they would be front and center for this performance! There is no denying that The Front Bottoms have a solid fanbase.
Back in 2013, my very musically advanced 13-year-old daughter shared a song with me that she had heard on a Spotify-curated playlist. She instantly fell in love with this song, and she could not wait to share it with me. I heard the song and said, “This song is great. Who is this? I need to look them up!” The band was Wolf Alice, a new band out of London, and the song was “Bros.”
On the last night of a US tour, Walk Off the Earth delivered a dynamic performance in a sold-out show at The Fillmore Silver Spring! Fans of all ages packed the venue Sunday evening and sang along to every song that the band performed.
Lindey Jordan returned to Baltimore with her band Snail Mail to play a sold-out show as the headlining act at the Ottobar Wednesday. Despite a March snowstorm that came through the area earlier in the day, the Ottobar was packed with fans who braved the weather to enjoy the show!
